Jean enjoyed family, friends cooking, baking, canning, bridge, tending to her many flower gardens and world travels, especially to Ireland, where she and Mike visited many relatives and friends. There she began to collect and learn about Waterford Crystal to share with her family.

Her family was her greatest accomplishment and we will all miss her deeply.
